Donny van de Beek

Manchester United sign Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge admirer of the Netherlands international, 23, and has had him watched on a number of occasions. It is understood United have now firmed up their interest with medical and personal terms still to be concluded.

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek after the two clubs agreed on a fee in the region of £40m.

The transfer is expected to be finalised within days. Van de Beek is set to sign a five-year deal, which should allow him to be available for United’s opening game of the 2020-21 season, against Crystal Palace on 19 September.

He will become Solskjaer’s first close-season signing after a much-publicised move for Borussia Dortmund’s England winger Jadon Sancho stalled over the size of the fee.

Van de Beek was part of the outstanding Ajax side that got to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019. He was left out of Ajax’s friendlies with German pair Eintracht Frankfurt and Union Berlin over the weekend.


Done deal! Here we go! Manchester United are signing Donny van de Beek. The full details are:✅ €40m plus add-ons fee agreed with Ajax✅ Van der Sar crucial in helping quick deal happen✅ Van de Beek will sign a 5 year deal✅ Medical in next few days✅ Official announcement by end of the weekVan de Beek for €40m instead of Grealish for £70m or Brooks for £40m?

Hoping he's the start of a wave of signings for United but Donny, welcome to United brother 👊
